Going forward...

Aims and goals will be identified based on the assessment; whilst taking the owner's aims with the animal into account.  Advice and guidance will then be given to the owner regarding:

  • Exercise (whether remedial, or of a conditioning and performance nature)

  • Home management (particularly for older arthritic dogs, for example)

What happens after your Veterinary Physiotherapy appointment?

After your appointment, I will endeavour to send you a full report of the appointment as soon as I can, as well as details and further guidance on any home exercise and management plans discussed during your appointment. 

A report will also be sent to your veterinary surgeon to keep them updated on your animal's progress.
